Thee Makeout Party! Release New...Cassette
Anaheim's Thee Makeout Party! are clearly pretty fun and pretty wacky: they have a song about the Disneyland Jungle Cruise, for instance. (The fact that they produce exceptional pop-rock shouldn't be ignored, either, check out our review of Play Pretend.) So it's not surprising that their latest release, Seven New Songs, isn't being released online or as a CD: it's only available as a cassette, and only at their shows. Once the run of 250 tapes is up, that's it.
Luckily, they've got a couple shows coming up: October 19 at the Bootleg Theatre in Los Angeles, and October 24 at the Juke Joint in Anaheim.
Putting out tapes is old hat for Thee Makeout Party!--members Sean Bohrman and Lee Noise co-run Burger Records, and have released tapes for Audacity, Nobunny and Devon Williams, among others. They put out vinyl, too. And CDs too, occasionally, though probably only begrudgingly.
